Drug Testing Collection Process

In 2005, Enid Board of Education Members approved a drug prevention policy that included random drug testing for students involved in extra-curricular activities sanctioned by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association (OSSAA). Their goal was simple: to keep students safe by giving them another reason to say no to illegal and performance-enhancing drugs. While the policy was inactive for several years, the policy was revised and re-implemented in 2016 to ensure we are providing the safest environment possible at the high school and all three middle schools.

Hair samples will be collected to complete the testing. We have provided photos below to help parents and students better understand the process. Thank you to the EHS students and coaches who volunteered to be tested and allowed us to document their experience.

Please note: All 7th-12th-grade students who participate in OSSAA activities are required to have a parent-signed drug testing consent form on file. To learn complete this form, please visit: To learn more about the drug testing policy, visit
